Preview: Manchester United vs. Bayer Leverkusen


David Moyes will be hoping to show he can cut it in Europe.

Tonight’s fixture at Old Trafford will be Manchester United’s first Champions League game without Sir Alex Ferguson. The Red Devils faces an in-form Bayer Leverkusen, the German side having won four of their five first games in Bundesliga. Leverkusen manager Sami Hyypia may never have coached in Champions Leauge, but he has won the competition as a player with Liverpool.

Danny Welbeck suffers from a knee injury and is doubtful, while Wayne Rooney wore a headband against Palace to protect the severe gash which had prevented him from playing for England earlier this month.

The rest of Group A is made up of Ukranian champions Shakhtar and Spanish side Real Sociedad. United may be favourites to qualify for the knock-outs, but it is by no way a done deal.

Betting: Bet365 prices the match 1.90 3.60 4.50 (10/11 13/5 7/2). The price for a Manchester win feels competitive, as the German side has failed to win on English soil in all their previous attempts.
